Music Rotation — 3 Nov

Posted in music at 1:42 pm by berzerkeleyan

Snow Patrol “A Hundred Million Suns” (2008)genre: Emoschlock.
Ryan Adams & The Cardinals “Cardinology” (2008)genre: alt.country. This is Ryan’s eleventh album since starting his solo career in 2000. Incredible, considering none of his albums are duds. That includes this one. It’s not his best. In fact, it’s rather formulaic compared to his others. But that only means it’s great rather than groundbreaking.
Queen “Queen” (1973)genre: Glam Rock.
Kaiser Chiefs “Off With Their Heads” (2008)genre: Britpop.
Mindy Smith “One Moment More” (2004)genre: Country.
Dustin O’Halloran “Piano Solos” (2004)genre: Post-Modern Classical.
Travis “Ode to J. Smith” (2008)genre: Emoschlock. Meh. Their last two albums…tepid, at best. They just don’t do it for me anymore. Not recommended at all, even for their most ardent fans.
Starsailor “On the Outside” (2006)genre: Britpop.
Devics “My Beautiful Sinking Ship” (2001)genre: Mouse Folk.
